The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to all of us, affecting most everything in our daily lives. However, we’re pleased to share it has also highlighted the resiliency and adaptability of the environmental education team at the SOCP. We’ve gone online with new information materials and workshops, allowing us to stay engaged with communities, teachers, and students throughout Sumatra and the world.
A real highlight has been the formation of an outreach and education team to flesh out the learning experience we’ll offer visitors to our Orangutan Haven. We have solicited input from local communities on the issues related to conservation that most affects their daily lives and used these suggestions to produce an educational concept catered to the needs of those people that would have the most direct impact on the forests of Sumatra.
